Bruce, I just uploaded a few photos of the process of creating the neck angle.  Check out my newest photo album and it should be self explanatory.  It's not rocket surgery.

Back to the Roland amps, my daughter and I both have Roland CM-30's.  They are cube monitors and are for all intents and purposes nothing more than an acoustic amp with no fx.  All you can do is play clean, adjust highs and lows and volume with 3 channels and if you want fx you have to use a pedal, BUT, and it is a very big BUT,  it is an incredible piece of equipment if you are looking for something that will provide GREAT vocals.  It can be hooked in tandem with another and can easily handle small venue gigs without feeling like you have compromised on sound quality.

Yes , agree with Bruce re buy new. But the micto cube I bought used was "as new", and still in box (although box showed signs of wear LOL). I paid about £30. Only bought because of good/new condition. But better to buy new, than to buy a "well worn" one :)

BTW, very nice builds Charlotte.

The only thing I'm wondering is how you measure that 2 degrees in neck angle.

I used to make the neck reasonably flush with the box lid so the fret board was only a few millimeters above.http://devilguitarstasmania.blogspot.com.au/p/selection-of-our-guit...

 I now build the fet board about 7 mm above the lid, but like your 2 degree angle idea.

The difference in price between new & second hand Micro Cubes over here in Oz is so little, I bought a new one.

Only criticism is the power switch at the back of the amp :-(

Other than that I love it!!

Yes, really good amps. Ah got one second hand, from GUMTREE, new condition, for a good price. Think they are only about £65,  but not used it for uplaods yet :)

That Roland Micro Cube is just amazing and you can pick them up for very little on ebay.  I'm liking most everything Roland makes.

Anyone with experience in 1-3-1 tuning?

Most seem to tune their CBG to 1-5-1 (for example GDG, EBE, DAD). As I have understood this tuning…See More
